December 1st was World AIDS Day. The city of Baltimore saw numerous events in recognition of the occasion.
In 2008, the Baltimore Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) found that Baltimore ranked #4 in the nation for HIV incidence. This meant that among every 100,000 people in Baltimore, 32 of them are infected with the human immunodeficiency virus.
Moveable Feast helped to commemorate the day by participating in the Baltimore World AIDS Day Celebration, held at the Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church.
The event was well attended. Rob Carr, a photographer from the Associated Press, took a few pictures, which were later displayed online in various global World AIDS Day galleries. Check them out below!
